Below is a list of our available Labrador Retrievers. If you don't find the new friend you're looking for on this page, check out our Coming Soon Labs. We typically have approximately 30 Labs in our rescue program at any given time. Labs come into the program and are adopted daily, so this list is ever-changing.
Click each picture to find what our foster families have to say about each of our Labs. Since we don't have a shelter, all our dogs are in foster homes. Our foster parents provide as much information as possible on the behaviors and traits of our dogs.
The adoption fee for an adult Lab is $300 + State Tax. The adoption fee for puppies (6 months and under) is $375 + State Tax.
If you are interested in meeting one of our Labs, the next step is to complete an adoption application. Adoption information and application is found here. If you have questions about the adoption application process, send an email to our Applications Team.

Hi there fans,
I know you are all wondering why my handsome self has been hanging around so long. “Coming Soon” Well.... I have to admit, I came in a bit rude so the rescue sent me off to boarding/charm school. I will say, not bragging but, I am doing amazing. I have never had a mean bone in my body. I have this leash walking thing down to a science. All those commands no problem! Have a treat?
After all this time I am ready to find my perfect home. I want my new owner to be interested in continuing my training. We have some private lessons I bring along so we can learn more together. I’m the biggest kid ever that my foster dad says I act more like a 6 month old puppy - so you haven’t missed anything! Don’t let my size fool you either, I’m very quick and light on my paws. I have no problem laying my head on your lap one minute and playing with you the next. Sometimes I even try to get you to play by lightly putting my mouth on your hand. Either way I’m always ready to go to bed when its time and really enjoy staying in my dog bed all night in the bedroom till the alarm clock tells me it’s time to get up. I even understand the meaning (not purpose) of the snooze button. If exercise is your thing? Great!! I simply cannot get enough. If not, I’ll make sure you enjoy it with me.
There is no doubt that I will be the most amazing companion you will ever have at your side. So let’s meet soon so we can talk with the rescue about us being a family. Looking forward to meeting you soon.
Tigger - 1.8 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 75 lbs - TBD
Tigger is a very handsome young Lab! He loves to play, he's sweet, and will snuggle. Tigger is very energetic! He knows a quite a bit but also needs reinforcement. He is a lot of fun and a lot of dog. He’s crate trained and does well in the crate but there are also times when he will bark for about 15 minutes before settling. He’s good on the leash as long as you are vigilant when approaching other dogs as he gets excited and needs reminders to heel. His exuberant personality would likely not pair well with young kids (under six) as he could easily knock them down.
Tigger would do best where someone is home most of the time while he learns to relax when you leave.
Caballero - 6.5 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 76 lbs - Heartworm negative - Avail now
My name is Caballero (it’s Spanish for gentleman), and I’m a fun-loving guy looking for my forever family! I love long walks, back scratches and taking naps near my people. I have a heart of gold. I walk well on a leash, and even know how to shake with both paws, sit and lay down. My start to life was not that great; I was kept outside and most days had to fight for my food. Because of that, I developed some bad habits they call resource-guarding. I’ve been working really hard to learn new manners and coping skills, and I’ve even been evaluated by a professional trainer. They say I am super intelligent, and learn quickly. I need a family that can commit to helping me continue to learn that I no longer have to worry about food, water and a safe place to lay my head. Once I love and trust you, that will last forever! I will do best in a home with no other dogs, and no young children. 2020 is shaping up to be such a great year! Are you the family that will make it the happiest year of my life?
Thompson - 7.5 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 81 lbs - Available now
Bexar - 7.2 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Info: Black - Male - 81 lbs. Heartworm Negative. Available now.
Bexar is a handsome, healthy guy who is looking for a forever home. He was lost from his last home & they were not able to reconnect. But that’s ok because he has moved on with a good attitude & love in his heart. He is housebroken, has good house manners (no puppy shenanigans) and is good with other dogs (and maybe cats). He doesn’t look his estimated age as his little bit of gray is not that noticeable. He still has lots of life, love & devotion to give to a new family.
Wynter - 8.2 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 56 lbs- Heartworm negative- Available now.
Also, my foster Mom took me to the Vet because she was concerned with my gait. Turns out I have arthritis in my left knee and early signs of hip dysplasia. The Vet says that case management is the best approach; keeping me lean (did I mention I love food), minimize high impact activity, massages,
glucosamine supplements and pain medication. I need daily short walks to help with flexibility in the joints as well as strengthening of the muscles around the joints. With that said, I do like to occasionally zoom around the back yard at full speed and I will keep your backyard free of rabbits and squirrels. If you are willing to invest in my wellness, I will give you unconditional love and companionship in return. My foster Mom says I’m a great dog and she feels there is a special family that will provide me the love and security I am longing for so that I can provide that love back to them.
Murphee - 11.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 64 lbs - Heartworm negative- Available now.
Things were looking pretty bleak for me when my family took me to the shelter on December 22, 2019. Not my idea of a fun Christmas. But I was one lucky boy when the good folks at DFW Lab Rescue decided to pick me up. They say I am kind of an old guy, but Foster Mom says I sure don’t act like it! I am sweet, sweet, sweet, house trained, walk well on a leash, ride well in the car, and like all people and dogs. But man, the “Joy Meter” goes up though when someone brings out a tennis ball. My, oh my, I do love retrieving those balls. But I also know my manners. I sit before the ball is thrown, bring it back and drop it at your feet, and sit for you to do it again. Oh, I also know “sit” and “stay” (although that last one is pretty hard when one of those yellow balls is involved).
I will be great for someone who likes to go for walks, throw the yellow ball for me, then come home and snuggle. I love all kinds of affection and being close. As long as we are together, I am one happy, happy boy. I am looking for my new home and hoping my Forever Family will show up soon. If you think I might be the guy for you, just let the folks at DFW Lab Rescue know!
Harlowe - 3.1 Year Old Female
Initial Intake Info: Yellow - Female - 87 lbs. Heart worm negative - avaialble now
Hey there, thanks for stopping by to check me out. My name is Harlowe and I LOVE to play with all my toys. My favorite toys are my rope and tennis ball. I enjoy my crate time since it gives me a chance to recharge for when my foster parents get home. I enjoy daily walks with my foster mom, but I still get overly excited when I see those pesky squirrels, but we work on that every day. I sure hope my forever family is an active one since I enjoy my playtime outside. I love people and can get a little too excited when I see them, though my foster mom says with a little training I will be good. I am not sure what “training” means but if it means I get to be around humans more I am up for it. I like lounging in the house after I have had some time to get all my wiggles out. My foster mom says I am a “great dog and will make some family very lucky.” I sure can’t wait to meet that lucky family.
Reid - 2.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - 71 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available mid Feb
Hi! I'm Reid and I'm looking for my furever family. I'm a lean and handsome chocolate hunk of lab. You'll always see me with a smile on my face, a tennis ball in my mouth and a hop to my step. I'm crate trained and have mastered a few common skills. I am still working on my jumping and walking on a leash, but my foster parents say I'm a quick learner. If you're looking for your next best friend to play fetch and give lots of pets to, I'm your guy!
P.S. I'm still undecided about other dogs, so I'll probably do best in a home where all attention is on me!
Nova - 1.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female 53 lbs - Heartworm negative - Available now!!
Reece - 1.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - 49 lbs - Heartworm Negative - Est available TBD Mid Feb
Reece is a sweet playful male that gets along with his four legged foster brothers and loves all people. He loves to fetch - balls, toys, bones.. well anything you toss to him. He is working on being house trained. He is one of the smartest dogs I have seen, but needs basic puppy training 101. He loves to chew on bones and toys, and will be quite content laying at your feet with one of his favorite chew toys. He does well in the crate and is learning to walk on the leash. He does love his walks with the rest of the pack.
Reece is looking for his forver family - could that be you?
Giggi - 4.7 Month Old Female
Initial Intake Info: Yellow - Female - 24.6 lbs. Est. Avail. Date mid/late Feb
Hello all - my name is Giggi. I am a loving girl who is shy for just a little bit but as soon as I warm up it’s all fun and games from there. I love to jump around and run around. I currently have a two year old kid I chase when he’s running and like to play with. I am my brother's best friend and help him warm up to others. I love to snuggle on my foster couch with toys and blankets and nap. I will be your best friend as I grow and I also do well with other dogs.
Aurelia - 2.2 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 55 lbs - Heartworm negative- Avail now
Aurelia is a WONDERFUL young female lab. She is one of the very smartest, engaging, and affectionate dogs we have fostered (and we have fostered about 10 labs). Aurelia really is special, and will be a great dog for a lab loving family. She is always upbeat, curious, and ready to play or to cuddle. Aurelia follows us around the house throughout the day, and really enjoys the company of people. She is a "dog park adventurer" - she playfully engages with the dogs she meets and seems to intrigue other dogs. Interestingly, she is the first dog to have cajoled her lab foster brother to engage in puppy play. She is very intelligent, comes when called (even from across the distance of the dog park) and immediately learned our "go lay down" command we use with our dogs to have them vacate the kitchen or dining room during meal time. While the command is meant for our dogs to go to the other room, on her own Aurelia interpreted it as meaning to leave the house and go into the back yard! She has since figured out she can stay in the living room during meal times. Aurelia will quickly temper her natural exuberance when commanded to "settle", as well.
Aurelia has several characteristics which should be considered by potential adopting families. First, while she does not behave "wildly", she does have energy and will thrive best if she has ample opportunities to run. Second, Aurelia is an alpha with other dogs. She quickly established dominance over her older lab foster brother and is sometimes jealous of attention paid to her foster brother. She might be best as the only dog in the family or with a submissive dog. Auriela wags her tail frequently, and she wags it with such force that the tip of her tail will bleed when it hits objects. Once this fully heals, it should be resolved. Her new family has to be comfortable with such a happy and strong tail because Aurelia is one happy girl! She really is a fantastic dog who will make great dog for the right famly!
Riggs - 2.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 64 lbs - Heartworm negative- Available now.
We don’t know if Riggs had the chance to make the acquaintance of cats. To be safe and keep the house peace, we think he would be better in a cat-less home. Due to his size and sometimes a bit rambunctious, playful behavior, he might accidentally knock little children over. He for sure enjoys a yard and chasing squirrels.
Kody - 3.2 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Notes: Chocolate - Male - 87 lbs. Heartworm positive. Est. Avail. Date early Feb.
Kody is a beautiful boy who’s fun loving and affectionate. He adores people and his four legged foster brothers. His basic training is coming along well; sits for treats and meals, leash manners improve with every walk, crate trained, house trained and eager for his forever family to teach him new tricks. He does fancy himself a food critic so keep the counters clear!!!
Kody is always ready for an adventure but is just as happy with cuddles on the couch. So if you are looking for an all around nice guy, Kody is it!! Treat him like the treasure he is and this boy will return the love ten-fold.
Gia - 7.8 Month Old Female
Initial Intake Info: Yellow - Female - 53 lbs. Heartworm Negative. Available now.
Hello! My name is Gia and I am a very happy and energetic puppy. I am very active and love to run and chase balls. I've also never met a toy I didn't like. I am very friendly with both humans and other dogs. I am doing well with my house training and can go all night without needing to be let out. I still need some supervision during the day and more work on signaling when I need to go outside. I'm a big fan of food and will do almost anything for a treat!
My foster mom says I'm a really good girl. I haven't tried to chew on anything I'm not supposed to and, even though I'm tall enough, I haven't done any counter surfing at all. I'm just a super fun and playful girl looking for my forever home!
Cheyene - 8.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female 59 lbs - Heartworm negative - avail now
Mobes - 8.6 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - Heartworm negative - Est available Late Jan/Early Feb
Mobes is a handsome, healthy boy looking for a forever home. He was surrendered by his family who had to move and could not take him to the new place. But they have given him a great start and while he is a bit overwhelmed right now at his foster home, he is adjusting more every day. He is a gentle giant at 100lbs and very keen to please. He is housebroken, has good house manners, is used to being trusted in the house, is good with other dogs - not dominant - and good with young children. He is a bit of a lazy couch lover right now and needs to lose some weight but is keen to walk every day and loving the exercise. With a family to walk and play with him it will not be long before his step is lighter and full of energy.
Kiki - 6.9 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female 36 lbs - Heartworm negative - Available now.
Kiki is young black female. She is petite, sweet, and gentle. She loves to snuggle. She doesn’t love her crate, but she stops fussing when left alone after about 5 minutes. She isn’t mouthy and hardly even chews on toys. She loves to play fetch, chase, and tug of war. She is housetrained and gets along great with our dogs, one of which is usually grouchy with fosters. Kiki does love to be on the couch (we allow it) and probably will claim your bed if you allow it (we don’t). So far she hasn’t barked at people walking by the house at all. Cats are unknown.
Kiki will be available to meet families mid-Feb. Don’t miss out on this sweetie!
Sassee - 1.6 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Chocolate (Silver) Female - Heartworm negative - Est available early/mid Feb
Hey there! My name is Sassee, and I am a sweet cutie patootie. I came to the rescue when my previous family’s schedule got too chaotic to properly take care of me, but their loss is certainly your gain, if I do say so myself! I don’t want to brag too much, but I’m a pretty amazing girl.
I am great with small dogs; it helps that I’m on the petite side, too. I previously lived with a miniature Dachshund, so I wasn’t used to being the smallest of the pack until I moved in with my crazy foster siblings. It took me a day to adjust, but now I play all day long with my new 70 pound husky bestie. When I am not playing with that spazzy boy, I love talking walks, cuddling on the couch, destuffing toys, playing fetch, and squeaking my ball until my foster mom decides her ears need a break. To top off all of this amazingness, I am crate trained, house trained, and gorgeous as can be.
I cannot wait to meet my new equally amazing forever home. In the meantime, I’ll be squeaking my ball!
Kobee - 4.7 Month Old Male
Initial Intake Notes: Yellow - Male - 23.4 lbs. Est. Available Date mid/late Feb
Hello Everyone - my name is Kobee. I’m a shy little boy who once warms up to you has lots of love to give. I love everyone including kids and babies. My sister is my partner in crime and we like to do the usual puppy stuff. As I warm up I like to bark from a distance but once comfortable I love belly rubs and laying close by. I will bark at the mail man when he drives by so you know he’s here.
I will be looking for my forever home soon so if you are interested in me please let the adoptions team know!
